Gas conversion of my uuni
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:29:28 PM »
 I have been working on converting my uuni to propane. Think I found a workable method . Got two nice pies out of it tonight. 60 second bake.

Hi Larry!

Really great build you did there, looks amazing. And the results...   :pizza::drool:
Would you share some more details how you did this?

A few questions come to my mind when I see your pics:
What kind of burner do you use?
Did you need to change much on the uuni itself?
Is it possible to switch between gas and wood burner?
How much gas does your burner consume?

I read several times that uuni wants to offer a gas burner option for the uuni 2 and 2S as a separate kit. Really excited how it will look like.

Best regards,
Flo

Hi, the burner is a 6 inch high pressure burner from bayou classics. I ground down the four legs enough so they would allow the burner to sit flush with the top of the stone . The center leg is threded so you can screw
the burner in. I sits on top of the floor and the front two feet hit the back. That is the only way this burner fits.american metal craft makes some thin pizza stones there are six in the box and are 4by6 by 3/8 I cut those up pull out the fuel hopper and slide two of them into the interior divider . You have to slide it out as there is a threded screw attachment it must sit in front of. Slide it back in refasten the screws it n
Then attaches to the propane and you adjust the flame with the regulator. 0 to 5 psi. Make sure the front is off and you regulator starts close . Open very slowly till you get a small flame then you can slowly increase it. Put the front cover on and let it heat. To me it makes the uuni very easy to use. And it works very well.
